So you’re your suitcases – we’re off to discover the city’s best hidden gems for your honeymoon in Sydney!
Pack a picnic basket for a lazy day beneath the warm sun in this charming park. There are several electric barbeque spots where you can cook food, and a few good spots to see the sunset from as well. You’ll love seeing the bright colors of the setting sun cast the whole park in an orange glow! In the morning, mist over the park’s tranquil pond illuminates with pale, white sunlight, giving Centennial Park a magical fairy tale look, especially during winter.
Make the most of your honeymoon with a through Sydney’s stunning harbor. You’ll get an incredible look at the Sydney Opera House, arguably the city’s most iconic building, and can pick from a variety of cruise types to fit your honeymoon style:
A cocktail cruise will get you at a private table enjoying all the designer drinks your hearts desire. An overnight cruise is a bit more dramatic, giving you a romantic dinner onboard followed by a whole night to yourselves to enjoy the harbor (and each other).
Dinner Under the Sea
For a completely unique honeymoon date night, reserve a table for two “under the sea” at Sydney’s Sea Life Sydney Aquarium. Get a tour of the aquarium followed by a gourmet meal as exotic sea creatures swim all around you through a transparent subaquatic dome. You’ve never had dinner like this before! The only downside we see to dining “under the sea” is, if you order fish, you might feel bad seeing all the schools of cute little swimmers passing by!
What better place to relax together than on an idyllic beach? Sydney has many of them. From Avalon to Bungan and beyond, Sydney’s beaches have soft golden sand, warm water, and pleasant lapping waves, so you can sunbathe, swim, and romance as long as you please. Long Reef or Fisherman’s Beach are good options to stay near civilization and still be secluded from the hustle and bustle.
If you’re a pair of adventurous adrenaline junkies, then hot air balloon ride makes for an amazing new way to see the city. Balloon Rides Sydney offers rides starting from the crack of dawn, giving you the best seats in the world to view the Sydney sunrise. The views are breathtaking, so hold your other half close while you watch the sky be painted in vivid swirls of orange, red, and purple.
